Transform Trauma Through Fierce Love – Recorded for On Demand, Online Learning

Using the AEDP Therapist’s Bold, Embodied Presence

LIVE DEMOS and more help you learn how to bring your SELF more fully into the therapy dyad with SueAnne Piliero, PhD


Being an AEDP therapist requires not just learning the theory or the techniques, but also building the knowledge, awareness, and capacity within our SELFs to “be with” and “stay with,” the depth of emotional pain, shame, anger, grief, unbearable aloneness…

It requires a strong therapeutic presence; leading boldly, fiercely advocating and championing our patients in a verbally and affectively explicit way; finding and “gluing the glimmers” of light when your patients see and feel nothing but darkness within them.

It requires accompanying our patients on emotional journeys that we ourselves may never have been on (and perhaps avoiding because we, too, are afraid to touch that guarded space within us).

It requires that we tend not just to our patients’ affective and relational wounds, but also to our own.

It requires an openness to love and be loved by our patients, even in our authentic moments of doubt or ambivalence.

In short, being an AEDP therapist requires the courage to practice from the “inside out.” Not an easy task.

In this workshop, we will explore in-depth how to bring our SELFs more fully into the therapeutic relationship in order to enhance, deepen and accelerate the healing process. Through lecture, videotape, and a live demo you will see, hear, and witness how the most powerful tool in our clinical toolkit is our own embodied presence. In this workshop, which welcomes practitioners who are both new to and already familiar with AEDP, you will be able to:

  • Practice your ability to be more present, engaged, and attuned in your work with patients
  • Integrate the power of your whole Self, viscerally impacted by your patients’ histories and core affective  experiences, to guide your interventions
  • Accelerate, enhance and complete the healing process by “leading” more and advocating more fiercely on behalf of your patients
  • Sharpen your moment-to-moment tracking skills focusing on words, affect, and the body

THIS WORKSHOP INCLUDES A LIVE DEMONSTRATION OF THERAPY
